The John Anaya Band
Its a dream come true when you can surround yourself with a group of musicians who are better than you! The "full" band features 4-5 of Edinburgh's best. Pockets (Pockets and Narwhal, Youtube) on drums and harmony, Martin Beer on Upright Bass, Juanjo Mata (Andy Gunn) on Harmonica, Ben Arrington (Baba Yaga, Auld Reekie String Band) on Fiddle and (not pictured) Scott Cunningham on lead acoustic guitar. The band plays "Hard Core Folk", it rocks and will move you. Gypsy Jazz, Boogie Blues and wonderfully arranged Pop Classics converted to an all acoustic high energy band. John is an acclaimed songwriter who plays 3-4 nights a week in Edinburgh, runs two Folk Music Sessions at legendary Royal Oak and Captains Bar. The repertoire is ever-changing and sure to please, dance, jump, drink, we don't mind!
